Applicants should have GCSE English and mathematics at grade D/3 or above, or a Functional Skills qualification at level 1, or a level 2 ESOL qualification.
The course is intended for those wishing to continue to study psychology at a higher level, pursue careers in fields such as health, education, marketing, media or human resources or simply to learn more about how our minds work.
You will need to have a mature approach to study and be highly self-motivated with the willingness to work hard both independently and in small groups and take part in discussions.

Students may go on to an Access to HE course at CCN or university courses which require a GCSE in a social science subject at grade C or above.
